Villa boss Dean Smith has already raided the Canaries this summer.
Aston Villa are clearly a club on the rise and the club’s owners obviously have huge ambition. Exciting times lie ahead for Villa, that’s for sure.
And Smith’s transfer business seems set to continue.
Todd Cantwell will cost £20 million
That’s according to the Sun. It is suggested that Smith is very keen to prise the 23-year-old winger away from Carrow Road this summer.
And it’s little wonder why – Cantwell is a truly top-class talent.
He was recently described as a terrific and wonderful player by BBC pundits Chris Sutton and Danny Murphy (MOTD).
The youngster racked up six goals and seven assists in 33 Championship games for Norwich last season.
He is incredibly skilful, possesses lightning pace and is a very good finisher.
Added to that, Cantwell is an exceptionally hard worker. He really does have the full package.
Taking all of the above into account, £20m for the Norwich ace seems like tremendous value for Villa.
Especially considering the fact that he can play on both flanks. It’s actually somewhat of a no-brainer for Smith.
